We found this restaurant by accident as we were wandering along the riverside on a Saturday afternoon. Nice interior and good english-speaking staff. Food quality was flawless. We will return.

we went to this restaurant because it was pouring outside and were seeking refuge. We were greeted by smiling faces and a warm welcome. The restaurant is sleek and stylish, and the river views are great. We loved the carpaccio, and the Daniella ham with honey truffle oil was amazing. Great Italian food for a reasonable price.

Slow service, small glasses of wine, servers more interested in their mobile phones than attending to customers, food not bad. I did mot understand why others raved about this very average or below average service experience.

Went to Tavola three times in the last two months. Good location facing the river, set lunch during the day (RMB148 drinks not included, not many options but good value), a la carte during the evenings. What makes Tavola a horrible experience is the service delivered by its unprofessional staff: food arrives late (REALLY LATE!), waiters are rude, salad buffet... More
